She has taken on a project of introducing our kiddos to the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have read the fairy tale in a whole group setting several times. Then the kiddos who were interested helped to create masks for all the characters and retell the story at the puppet theatre. Other kiddos were involved in the creation of stick puppets for retelling as well.
|Practicing drawing pictures and writing words.|
Once the children became very familiar with the story, Ms. Li has lead them through the process of creating their own Class Big Book of the story. Our own students are the writers and illustrators of this particular book. It is coming along nicely.
|Writing the words for all the characters and props.|
|Using our anchor chart to help create the Big Book|
|Paying attention to detail to illustrate our Big Book.|
|Creating the pictures for our Big Book|
To wrap up the project, we watched the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears (not animated) and the kiddos were encouraged to bring in their favourite stuffy. To introduce their stuffy to the class, each kiddo used descriptive words to talk about their animal. Great oral language skills are being developed. Some kiddos even drew pictures of themselves and their stuffy.
We would like to thank Ms. Li for all she has done with our class this term and are looking forward to helping her complete her projects with us.
